Profit and Nothing But!

2001 / 52min / DCP

DIRECTOR: RAOUL PECK

Before his watershed I Am Not Your Negro, Peck produced this incisive, intellectually rigorous work, which contrasts an exhaustive outline of the mercenary operations of the capitalist system with scenes from the filmmaker’s native Haiti, a close-up of the “have-nots” who suffer while the “haves” grow fat. “An elegant montage-cum-lecture applying Marxist economic theory to the forces of globalization.”—J. Hoberman
